If you are searching for a mother cat's milk replacement for a very young kitten, here in the US we use a powdered formula called "Kitten Milk Replacer" or KMR that is sold in Pet Stores. If this cat is an adult, again in the US we use a product called "Cat Sip" which is marketed in a carton that looks like a "juice box" and is also sold in pet stores. Please do not feed your cat cow's milk as this can cause major gastrointestinal upset and diarrhea. Cats do not require "milk" as such. A good quality wet (canned) food and dry food and a few occasional treats meant for cats are all that's necessary to maintain your cat's welfare.

I agree with Izzie. Unless your cat is pregnant or lactating, a milkless diet should be sufficient. Cats do best with cat only products. Morinaga in Japan makes a good powdered cat milk. That may be available in Malaysia. Nowadays, everything is available online. Cats tend to do well with fermented milk products, such as yogurt and processed cheese. But not as a staple. As a treat. Check out the food forums for advice about food.
